Princeton Public Library reviews
What an amazing library. I don't live in Princeton but often attend free events and seminars held at this venue and it's the most comfortable library I've ever been too. What an asset to the community!!
Library is spacious, well-kept and quiet, and is a wonderful place to do work when you just have to get off campus. Staff are very friendly and patient, and I love the book sale portion near the entrance - it's great to get new reading material while supporting a public institution!
